Hi for years now i have always struggled with severe depression, it is only since the internet has come about that i realize this is a medical problem. Before this i thought it was just how things are. I really want to speak to my doctor but feel silly and will not be taken seriously. Do doctors always take this sort of thing seriously or will they just tell you you are being silly. I already feel a bit silly by asking on this forum but things are getting so bad now i felt i had to do something.
